Although drawing and painting were my passion since childhood, I only found time to paint occasionally while earning my M.A and Ph.D. in biology.  I started painting full time about ten years ago after retiring from my careers.  I spent twenty years as a scientist and college educator and another twenty in biotechnology business development.  
Now I spend almost every day exploring and enjoying the wonders of watercolor. Each new painting is both a challenge and a reward.
